Matt Flynn, QB, Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers' back-up likely earned himself a shot as a starter somewhere with his performance against the Lions in Week 17, but he won't get a huge contract just yet.
Marcel Reece (RFA), FB, Oakland Raiders: Marcel Reece is probably the best fullback in this year's class and should be paid well by a fullback's standards.
Vincent Jackson, WR, San Diego Chargers: Vincent Jackson could easily command big money somewhere if he doesn't re-sign with San Diego, but I'm inclined to think his value will be reduced a bit because he is perceived as a headache.
Carl Nicks, G, New Orleans Saints: This All-Pro deserves elite-level money and will get it if he doesn't re-sign with New Orleans, but why would he want to leave a budding dynasty?
Chris Myers, C, Houston Texans: Chris Myers was one of the best centers in the NFL in 2011, but his value is somewhat limited by what scheme he plays in. He'll receive a nice extension to stay in Houston.
Scott Wells, C, Green Bay Packers: Wells is thought of as the best center in this class by some. He should get a solid contract.
Cliff Avril, DE, Detroit Lions: Cliff Avril had a breakout year in 2011, but he's still young. He might get a big offer from a pass rush-needy team, but I don't know why he wouldn't want to keep playing alongside Ndamukong Suh.
Jeremy Mincey, DE, Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeremy Mincey might be thought of as a one-year wonder, but Jacksonville badly needs him to stay and will make sure he does.
Paul Soliai, NT, Miami Dolphins: Soliai is one of the better nose tackles in the NFL and could garner interest from teams like the Houston Texans.
Stephen Tulloch, MLB, Detroit Lions: The Lions somehow landed Tulloch for just $3.25 million last year, but they'll likely have to offer him a multi-year contract this time around.
Lardarius Webb (RFA), CB, Baltimore Ravens: Webb is a young and budding star at the position and should be retained by the Ravens.
Tyvon Branch, SS, Oakland Raiders: Tyvon Branch is an above-average NFL safety who is adequate in the passing game and is a tackling machine. The Raiders can't let him get away.
